It's the same as the Thanksgiving deal. I got two for the same price.

It's a very good monitor but cannot daisy chain with a mac.

Could someone help me understand why you would buy this over an 4k IPS monitor that's around $300?

Only thing I can think of "Dell" benefits like their customer service, the build quality, both of which can be arguably reasons to pay some sort of sticker price.

UP (Ultra Premier) usually signals their highest monitor line. The expectation is that they're higher quality panels, and the panel model itself will be a higher performer than some of the other available 4K monitors.

For example (this was a quick google, I'm not interested in this monitor in particular, so this shouldn't be taken as a definitive source), this model's panel compared with a few others:

https://www.displayspecifications.../95e8832d2

Shows higher contrast ratio, sRGB representation, and bit depth support.

tl;dr Dell UP panels are generally expected to be the top of the generation panels available, and combined with the other reasons you specified generally make them worth the extra $ (YMMV though).

Tried matching it on BF and was told that they don't match with Costco. The agent gave me a list of shops they match with:
• Amazon.com
• Apple.com
• BestBuy.com
• BHphotovideo.com
• HP.com
• Frys.com
• Lenovo.com
• Microcenter.com
• Newegg.com
• OfficeDepot.com
• OfficeMax.com
• Sears.com
• Staples.com
• Target.com
• TigerDirect.com
• Walmart.com

This and the 27UK600-W use same panel I believe, I got burned by LG buying that panel on sale at BestBuy during Black Friday. Returned it and ended up buying this on Dell's site. Great deal but I don't have access to Costco. The only reason I went Dell is because it has a 3 year warranty, I have had a good experience with them, and the majority of panels I have had have very good quality control. I cannot say the same about LG and their 1 year warranty. I would gladly pay slightly more for better quality, imagine the time you wasted if every monitor you had failed like the LG I had bought. You pay for what you get.

Typing this from my Dell 29" IPS Ultra-wide.

It depends. 3rd gen Intel Core CPUs or newer + Intel HD Graphics = 4K video support. It may run, but whether it runs smoothly is another matter. Performance differences between integrated and dedicated graphics cards are quite substantial. Personally, I would never want to drive a 4K display without a reasonably powerful dedicated GPU because it tends to get laggy pretty quickly for anything beyond the most basic desktop use.

Can I daisy chain two of these to run with one display port connection to my laptop?

EDIT:

Daisy Chain Availability:
No

This really kills it, or I'd buy two. This is a downgrade from their p2715q which can daisy chain, albeit using display port 1.2, why did they remove daisy chain capability in later models?

Thanks! I updated my post.

They are also using display port 1.2 still as well, so even if they kept the daisy chain from the previous model, you are limited to 2x 4K@60 Hz. I hope they release a monitor with DP 1.4 and daisy chaining someday. I use a laptop with dual 4K monitors, so it is nice to have one connection.

Is there a performance difference between running 2 wires from my GTX1070 gpu vs. daisy chaining two monitors.

New PC & I'm debating a dual monitor (24") vs one bigger ~27 or 34" in 4k. Right now I'm running 2 older 19" side by side. Workable but I need more real estate. Thanks.
